Too many Korean movies are currently emulating the stereotyped genre production of Holly Wood and HK cinema. However, this title shines among them because of its uniqueness and well-pacedness.
The plot is based on a real story and the hero is a real figure who is currently commanding a minor college squad. The structure and interactions among characters are nothing new, already experienced by many sport movies elsewhere. However, this movie preserves the austerity of exposing emotional fluctuation, and succeeds in drawing a shared opinion toward a commoner who struggles against and negotiates with highly competitive professional sport capitalism.
Nobody is winner or loser in this film and nothing is accomplished or discarded. Just everything is observed and experienced as the state it should and may be; and that is how this movie can have its own value and why this movie is praised by many local audiences and critics for its unheralded achievements.
